Anyone have a source for Chrysler Crown M-27 parts? Need rebuild parts, 12v generator, spark plug covers, paint code (for a 1948 U-22). Appreciate any help.

I had an M-26 1947 done by a local machine shop here in the Detroit area. Internal parts are all vintage Chrysler and mostly available. The cam shaft was not and many of the gaskets were also unavailable. Murley's Marine in Fairhaven, MI had the ones we needed. Murley claims to have scooped up all the Chrysler parts when Chrysler closed the marine division in Marysville, MI. He had the paint color duplicated as well. Carb parts are laying around for the old Zeniths. I had a trans guy do the trnas. It's a Joe's Gears. They had the band relined which according to Murley is only available from him. There's people out there that can help. I'm traveling today but when I get home I look and see what documents I still have. That old Chrylser six was built almost unchanged many, many years.
